Full version available: Members Area of the Cote Website:
Melinda Messineo introduced her group of students who are part
of an Immersive Learning course in which they have undertaken
a campus-wide Survey. This is a Sociology Capstone course
affiliated with Building Better Communities. The students were
invited by COTE to research survey participant knowledge of
divestment, feelings toward divestment and evaluate the
increased awareness of divestment on campus resulting from
survey participation. The students designed a survey, received
Institutional Review Board approval and administered the
survey on campus via email and a table in the Student Center.
The group shared their preliminary results and will present a
final report during the BBC Showcase December 8, 2014 in
Cardinal Hall from 5-7pm.
